Holidays in Lamorna

Lamorna Cove is a beautiful and secluded area of Cornwall sat between the pretty harbour town of Mousehole and the glorious Porthcurno beach. You can walk the coastal path to both of these locations, or if you’re feeling adventurous, walk all the way to Land’s End! Lamorna Cove is the perfect base to enjoy a self catering holiday and to explore the further reaches of West Cornwall.

The cliffs around Lamorna Cove are beautiful. The cove has been known for fishing and quarrying in the past. It was also a haunt for artists such as 'Lamorna Birch', particularly in the 1930s. The Cove also has an arts festival and a flourishing village hall, in which you might see international performers from time to time on the Carn to Cove Rural Touring Circuit. The cove lies at the end of a woodland valley, as does St. Loy, a little further south along the coast.

Top tip

Walk the coast path from Lamorna to Mousehole for some truly breathtaking views!

Things to do at Lamorna

When the tide is out, Lamorna Cove sports a small sandy beach, but its rocky nature means the area is better known for diving and snorkelling. A nearby beach café serves hot and cold snacks or park up and enjoy an ice cream while looking out to sea. In the summer season you can hire motorboats and kayaks or if you’d rather something less active, the blue waters are perfect for bathing. If a day at the beach is your thing, check out our guide to Sandy beaches in West Cornwall for other beaches in the area which are well worth visiting.

With the harbour town of Penzance just a short drive away, there's plenty to keep you entertained on a self catering holiday in Lamorna. For ideas on what to do during your stay with us, check out our blog post on Days out around Penzance.

A trip to the stunning tidal island of St Michaels Mount is a must if you're in the area.

A true story...

A lot of famous people holiday in the hills and coves of Cornwall. In the 1970s, three locals (an out of work actor, a DJ, and a young writer) decided to start a hospital radio station, named Duchy Hospital Radio. They set up in a caravan in a car park behind West Cornwall Hospital in Penzance. The actor and writer were particularly interested in spoken word programmes and secured an Uher, the must-have portable reel to reel audio tech of the day. The actor discovered that a famous person was getting away from it all at Lamorna Cove Hotel.  An interview with George Harrison would get Duchy Hospital Radio noticed! The famous Beatle was only too pleased to help and invited them to join him at the hotel for a cream tea. For an hour or more the actor and writer chatted amiably to George about being famous, hiding away in Cornwall, what the other Beatles were like, and the price of tea and chips. Back in the Duchy Radio caravan, the novice reporters soon discovered that in the excitement of meeting their hero, the actor had forgotten to press ‘Record’!
